Video Art Screening ’TIME is Love.9’ by Kisito Assangni on June 19th at Mur Nomade [fr]
Mur Nomade presents the international video art program ’TIME is Love’, travelling to Hong Kong for the first time.
Established in 2008 by curator Kisito Assangni, TIME is Love has travelled to major cities around the world exploring the theme of love in hard times, and bringing every year a refreshing perspective on video art. This screening will be a unique opportunity for Hong Kong audience to discover innovative and thought-provoking works.
TIME is Love.9 is the ninth edition of the program and features a curated selection of twenty videos by international artists from Europe, Africa, the U.S., Chile, Afghanistan, Israel and Japan.
Exploring love stripped of its traditional clichés and timeless idealism, the videos address the complexities of human relationships. In their own languages infused by personal sensibility and history, the artists deal with ambivalent emotions, prevented communications, disturbed feelings, globalization, memory and spirituality. The program hopes to encourage the audience to reflect on the normative understanding of relationships in our modern society.
TIME is Love.9 selected artists: Alex Pearl (UK), Annabel Dover (UK), Boris Eldagsen (Germany), Carla Gannis (USA), Dimitri Fagbohoun (Benin), Fatos Irwen (Turkey), Halida Boughriet (Algeria), Irina Gabiani (Luxembourg), Javiera Tejerina (Chile), Joas Nebe (Germany), John Sanborn (USA), Michele Manzini (Italy), Nao Sakamoto (Japan), Nicolas Tourte (France), Rahman Hak-Hagir (Afghanistan)/Alfie Nze (Nigeria)/Alice Bachmann (France), Simo Ezoubeiri (Morocco), Sonia Laura Armaniaco (Italy), Thierry Ferreira (Portugal), Victor Mutelekesha (Zambia), and Yuval Yairi (Israel).
Willing to support sustainability and promote recycling, Mur Nomade is partnering with Crossroads Foundation, who kindly provided collected second-hand equipment for the screening of TIME is Love.9. Donations to Crossroads Foundation can be made at the end of screening.
